Lake Blanche Adventure

Mins and I thought it would be a genius idea to go hiking last Thursday. We weren't really familiar with the whole hiking scene in Utah so we asked around. Uhhh... yeah.. our "mountaineer" told us to hike up to Lake Blanche, which is in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Okay... that hike was death for beginners.
It was straight uphill THE.WHOLE.WAY.

Mins and I struggled. The hike was 6 miles round trip so we were determinted to finish. Of course, it started raining when we were about 45 minutes from the top. It felt nice at first until we got closer to the top and it started raining harder and then the wind chill kicked it.

We didn't really get to enjoy the lake because it was absolutely freezing. We took some pictures and basically ran back down the mountain.

Let's just say I hate nature, bugs, and snow more than I did on Wednesday night.

Still on the way up.

Nice & toasty.

I wasn't as sore as I thought I would be the next morning, but my ass and calves struggled for a few days.
